Discover Yourself!

Good Morning!
Natalie here again today with a quick Tag for you all to try making yourselves! I have kept this tag simple with the sentiment as the main focus for this week's theme of Wise Words.

Start off by stamping your sentiment in the centre of a blank tag using your chosen Distress Ink. Sprinkle over some Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Set and let cool. By Embossing the sentiment it will resist any other inks that go over the surface of it!

For the next part swipe some stains onto a craft mat and spray liberally with water. Swipe the tag through the inks along with blotting the tag into the ink to create a mottled effect like above.
Once your happy ink around the edges!

If you look closely you will see that to finish off the tag before embellishing I have stamped a floral design in Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  Repeat this three or four times in various positions on the tag. Remember you can easily wipe away the excess ink that gets onto the sentiment by gently wiping with a damp cloth!

Once your happy feel free to embellish the tag however you like, I have simply added some Dew Drops, a Floral Charm and Seam Binding Ribbon that has been dyed with Distress Stains!
